Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of San Jose Leg Pain Right or Left

Right leg. Left leg. Sciatica (aka leg pain) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). San Jose chiropractic care at Chiropractic Solutions helps reduce leg pain and focuses on the spinal source of the sciatica at the same time. Chiropractic Solutions leads San Jose leg pain and back pain patients to pain relief with chiropractic care.

SCIATIC LEG PAIN: Right Leg or Left Leg

You’ve heard of right-handed people and left-handed people, right? Of course, you have! Did you know that the right leg grows longer in left-handed people and the left leg grows longer in right-handed people? Not all the time, but research documents this differeence. With this in mind, it is not surprising that more people have longer left legs (53%) than right legs (39%). Incredibly, just 8% of people have equal leg lengths. (1) How does that impact which leg will have radiculopathy? Discs will bulge into the concavity of the curve owing to a variety of issues like uneven stresses on the anulus of the disc. The concavity of the spinal curve is on the long leg side. A right-handed person with a long left leg will likely experience left leg pain. Another curious point: hip pain often occurs on the long leg side, too: 88.9% long leg and 11.1% short leg. Sciatica is the same: 78.5% arises on the long leg side versus 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your San Jose chiropractor can see a short leg pretty simply by examining 3 things: iliac crest, the verticality of the spine, and levelness of the posterosuperior iliac spine dimples. Researchers noted that there is a strong relationship between visual and xray measurements. (4) Trust your San Jose chiropractor to see a short leg…and take care of any related disc herniation sources of pain!

DISC HERNIATION RE-ABSORPTION WITH NON-SURGICAL CARE

A new study examined 75 cases of ruptured lumbar disc herniation. Forty-six of the 75 cases had radiating leg pain: 46 cases on the left and 29 on the right. (Makes sense now, right?) At 5 years follow-up after non-surgical treatment, a “reabsorption” phenomenon was noted. The excellent and good rate of disc reabsorption was 73.24%. (5) Chiropractic Solutions delivers relieving non-surgical care of San Jose leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR San Jose LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

And then recall the recent paper about the benefits of chiropractic maintenance care: Maintenance care decreases the number of days of pain in acute back pain episodes and raises the length of pain-free times between back pain episodes in patients with recurrent and persistent back pain. (6) Chiropractic Solutions is ready for those back pain and leg pain patients seeking fewer days with back and leg pain and those who would like to live life with fewer periods of leg and back pain.
